Mötley Crüe release video teaser for trailer of Netflix movie ‘The Dirt’
Mötley Crüe consisting of bassist Nikki Sixx, lead vocalist Vince Neil, drummer Tommy Lee and guitarist Mick Mars have released a video teaser for the trailer of the upcoming Netflix movie The Dirt, which is based on their band’s best selling autobiography The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.
The sleaze rockers will be releasing four new songs including one which will feature rapper Machine Gun Kelly who has been casted as Tommy Lee in the movie, which will be released on Netflix on March 22, 2019.
The other main actors in the movie are Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) who will portray Mick Mars, Daniel Webber (The Punisher) as Vince Neil and and Douglas Booth as Nikki Sixx.
Wikipedia states the following about the production for the movie The Dirt (with slight edits):
“In 2006, film adaptation rights to the autobiographical book The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band, authored by Neil Strauss with Tommy Lee, Mick Mars, Vince Neil, and Nikki Sixx, were bought by Paramount Pictures and MTV Films. At the time, Larry Charles was tapped to direct the film. However, production on the film stalled and in 2008 Sixx spoke of his frustration in an interview stating:
In November 2013, Jeff Tremaine signed on to helm The Dirt, with the film having been dropped by MTV Films and Paramount Pictures. In January 2015, Focus Features picked up rights to the film. However, production languished in development hell until March 2017, when Netflix bought worldwide rights to the film. At the time, Liam Hemsworth, Emory Cohen, and Douglas Booth were being eyed for lead roles in the film. In November 2017, Booth officially signed on to star in the film. In January 2018, Machine Gun Kelly, Iwan Rheon and Daniel Webber joined the cast. In February 2018, Tony Cavalero joined the cast. In March 2018, Rebekah Graf, Leven Rambin, and David Costabile joined the cast.
Principal production commenced in February 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana.”
